7D Video Too Bright

Hi, I'm fairly new to the 7D. "I thought" I had all my video settings correct, but when taking a video outside it is either too bright or washed out. I set all my settings in Manual mode then I saved it to a custom setting. Upon taking video, my Exposure Level Meter is automatically metering very high. I would sincerely appreciate it if anyone could point me in the right direction for correction. Thanks, Ray

My settings are as follows;

  • Quick Mode
  • 1920x1080 @24frames
  • Shutter Speed - 1/50
  • Aperture - f/2.8
  • ISO - 160
  • AF Point Expansion
  • Landscape
  • Cloudy (used for warmth)
  • Evalutive
  • Auto Lighting Optimizer - Off
Canon EOS 7D
